The Truth About Love is the sixth studio album by American singer-songwriter Pink. It was released on September 14, 2012, through RCA Records. After giving birth to her first child in 2011, Pink started working on the album with longtime collaborator Billy Mann. With hopes of becoming more involved in the production of the album, she also reunited with Greg Kurstin and Butch Walker. Recording sessions took place between January and May 2012. The Truth About Love is primarily a pop record and includes elements of electropop, dance-pop, and rock music. Its lyrics explore themes of love, monogamy, and sexuality, as evidenced by the album title. The songs on the album express various perspectives towards romance and delve into the realities of long-term relationships. It features guest appearances by Eminem, Lily Allen, and Nate Ruess.

The album received generally positive reviews from music critics, who commended Pink's thematic and musical direction. Buoyed by extensive marketing, The Truth About Love was a commercial success, topping the charts in eight countries, including Australia, Canada, Germany, and Sweden. In the United States, it became Pink's first number-one album on the Billboard 200 chart and was later certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for sales of three million album-equivalent units. In Australia, The Truth About Love became the first album to top the year-end chart for two consecutive years and was certified nine times platinum by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA). It was ranked as the seventh best-selling album of 2012, with sales of 2.6 million copies sold worldwide. By 2016, the album had sold over seven million copies globally.

Six tracks from the album were released as singles. "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)", the album's lead single, was released on July 2, 2012, and peaked at number five on the US Billboard Hot 100. The second single, "Try", attained the top-ten position in several countries worldwide, including Australia, Canada, Germany, the UK, and the US. It was followed by "Just Give Me a Reason", which topped the record charts in over ten countries worldwide and became Pink's fourth number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100. "True Love" charted moderately in various countries, while the album's other singles, "Walk of Shame" and "Are We All We Are", had a limited release. The album was further promoted through The Truth About Love Tour (2013–2014), which grossed $183 million upon completion. The Truth About Love was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards.

Background and development[edit]

In November 2010, Pink released her first greatest hits album, titled Greatest Hits... So Far!!!.[1] The album spawned two singles, "Raise Your Glass" and "Fuckin' Perfect", which achieved commercial success, peaking at number one and number two, respectively, on the US Billboard Hot 100.[2][3] On June 2, 2011, Pink gave birth to her first child, a daughter named Willow Sage Hart.[4] Despite media speculation that Pink would take an extended break from music to focus on motherhood, her management team suggested in an interview with American Top 40 that the singer could release a new album next year.[5]

In March 2012, Pink confirmed via Twitter that she had begun working on her sixth studio album.[6] In an open letter to her fans posted on her official website, she detailed the process of crafting the record, saying, "I'm putting my heart and soul into every song and there's a lot of that these days. This little girl has expanded me and what I am capable of feeling as a human".[7] Pink later appeared on the cover of Cosmopolitan in June 2012.[8] While discussing her return to the music scene, Pink revealed that the album was set to be released during the fall of the same year, and that she worked on new music with Billy Mann, among others.[8] She added, "I've been in mommy mode, and I'm just starting to get back out there into the real world. I've been in the studio recording my new album, so now it feels like everything is falling back into place."[8]

Writing and recording[edit]

The development process of The Truth About Love took place between January and May 2012.[9] Pink recorded the album in sessions at Earthstar Creation Center in Venice, Conway Recording Studios in Los Angeles, Suite 203, and The Modern Dirt Laboratories in London, UK.[10] Before starting to work on the album, Pink contemplated how to successfully balance her music career and being a mother.[11] In an interview for Rolling Stone, she explained, "Every album, I'm worried that I'm a dork and a fraud – what if I can't sing anymore? Then I stop thinking and start playing guitar, and I realize that it's ok to suck, and move forward".[12] While her previous albums were created by working every day until the early morning, Pink said becoming a mother has changed the process of making music, essentially complying with a strict routine.[13] Recording sessions were therefore held only from Monday to Friday between 1 p.m. and 10 p.m., with breaks for nursing her daughter and having dinner. Weekends were off and dedicated to family time.[11][14]

Producer Greg Kurstin at the board in 2017
Greg Kurstin wrote and produced several tracks on The Truth About Love.[15]

For The Truth About Love, Pink enlisted the help of her longtime collaborators, Billy Mann, Butch Walker, and Max Martin, as well as first-time collaborators Jeff Bhasker and Dan Wilson.[16] Pink recalled that she started working on the album as "an experiment", and first met with Mann because she felt safe in a "no-shame zone" with him.[17][18] She also reunited with record producer Greg Kurstin, with whom the singer had not collaborated since her fourth studio album, I'm Not Dead (2006). Noting that they shared great camaraderie, Pink felt that Kurstin would align with her musical ideas and elevate her production and musicality.[19] Approximately 40 songs were written during the album's development process; Pink said she would write ideas for songs in her journal.[17] The title track was the song that made her realize the project was taking a definite form and had a cohesive theme of love.[18][20]

Pink drew inspiration for her songwriting from the various emotions she had experienced in her "exhausting search" for love, as well as the year she and husband Carey Hart were separated, admitting she was "still exorcising some demons".[18][21] Explaining her writing process, Pink told Daily News that the record reflects her life at the time and her newfound happiness, inspired by motherhood. She continued, "Everything's a song. It's just a lot more fun. [...] I think that's a new thing for me. I was having a lot more fun than I was having before".[22] She also sought to incorporate more musicality and raise the bar for herself, being more interested in the production aspects.[12][22] Kurstin considered that the creative process was not difficult because Pink would compose lyrics fast once she felt inspired, comparing her work ethic with a stream of consciousness.[22][15] Every day spent in the studio resulted in the completion of a new song, and Pink would record just "one or two takes", which, according to Kurstin, were "usually amazing".[22]

Every song on the album was co-written by Pink, with the exception of "Try",[19] which was written by Michael Busbee and Ben West, and was originally recorded in 2010 by their former band GoNorthToGoSouth.[23] They later pitched "Try" to Rani Hancock, an A&R executive of RCA Records, hoping to give the song to Kelly Clarkson or Daughtry. A demo version was also recorded by Adam Lambert, but according to Busbee, he "just wasn't the right fit".[24] After hearing it at a label meeting, the director of RCA agreed to pitch the song to Pink. Pink accepted the offer to record "Try", which Busbee said "was one of the first outside songs she had recorded in a long time".[24] The concept of "Just Give Me a Reason" was developed during a songwriting session with Bhasker and Nate Ruess.[25] Bhasker was introduced to Pink by Peter Edge, an executive of RCA Records. Pink approached Ruess because she was captivated by his "intense incredible" voice.[26][27] After the first verse was written, Pink later worked on the lyrics at home. She envisioned that the song's conversational nature demanded another collaborator, and selected Ruess to be a guest vocalist.[27] However, he was ambivalent about singing a duet with Pink because he only recorded a demo for the track.[25][28] Nonetheless, Pink persuaded Ruess to record "Just Give Me a Reason" in a duet after "many, many months of convincing".[28] She concluded; "I totally tricked him into doing it and I'm so glad that I was able to because no one could have done it better, and I think now he's very happy that he did it".[27]

Music and lyrical interpretation[edit]

Overview[edit]

The Truth About Love has been characterized as a pop album[29][30] that incorporates elements of electropop, dance-pop, and rock music.[31][32][33] The album consists mostly of "shouty" pop songs with "radio-gripping hooks" and confessional power ballads.[29][34][35] According to Jon Pareles of The New York Times, the album's instrumentation makes use of "dance beats, rock guitars, piano hymns, string orchestras, and hip-hop loops".[36] Pink described The Truth About Love as a personal rock and roll record about monogamous relationships and different perspectives towards love, including "dark, light, happy, [and] sad", as well as "exploring how much it can hurt and how much it can feel good".[27][37][38] Lyrical contents on the album are centered around Pink's recurring themes of love, sex, self-reliance, long-term relationships, and rebellion.[31][32] The Truth About Love is a marked change in Pink's vocal style; she had quit smoking and expanded her upper vocal range by an octave.[39]

Stephen Thomas Erlewine from AllMusic noted that the album explored more "grown-up emotions" and Pink "embracing every one of her contradictions".[29] Kyle Anderson of Entertainment Weekly remarked the album's concept of expressing the darker side of love with "righteous anger [and] irreverence",[34] while Sarah Godfrey of The Washington Post identified its tracks as "aggressive, attitudinal love songs".[40] Mesfin Fekadu from the Associated Press summarized The Truth About Love as a "rollercoaster of emotions", comparing the album with "watching a reality show about the ups and downs of her relationship with her husband".[41] Similarly, Christina Lee of Idolator suggested that the album documented Pink's year-long separation from her husband and her overall tumultuous relationship, pointing out the singer's realization that "the love of your life can also cause the heartbreak of your life".[42]

Songs analysis[edit]

The album opens with "Are We All We Are", a self-empowering protest song[16][44] featuring instrumentation of "crashing drums", keyboards, and disorientated synthesizers.[35][45] According to Diane Anderson-Minshall of The Advocate, lyrics such as "We are the people that you'll never get the best of" are inspired by economic inequality and the Occupy Wall Street movement.[46] Described as a breakup anthem,[47] the next track, "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)", is an upbeat electropop song with "Modest Mouse-style rock riffs" and "snappy guitars".[44][43][48] The song drew comparisons to Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" for having a similar sound; both songs were produced by Kurstin.[47][49] The third track, "Try", is a 1980s-influenced power ballad about a damaged relationship and taking risks with love.[16][35][46] It is followed by "Just Give Me a Reason", a duet with Nate Ruess. The lyrics find Pink pleading with a partner as they strive to stay together.[33][30]

The album's fifth track, "True Love", is a humorous ska-pop and pop-rock song, with guest vocals from Lily Allen.[50][51] Lyrically, it has been described as "a celebration of dysfunctional love" and retells aspects of Pink's riotous relationship.[34][35] A 1970s inspired glam rock and blues number, "How Come You're Not Here?" shows Pink's furious side at a partner who may be in love with someone else.[16][36] It contains distorted vocals, layered guitars, and bells played by Pink's daughter, Willow.[46][14] "Slut Like You" is an electroclash song whose tongue-in-cheek lyrics talk about female empowerment and owning one's sexuality.[46][43][52] Critics found similarities between the track and Blur's 1997 single, "Song 2", as well as references to the 1983 American crime drama film, Scarface.[16][32][36] The next track on The Truth About Love is the title track, a retro 1960s influenced song.[29][53] Its subject matter centers around the realities of a long-term relationship.[45]

"Beam Me Up" is an acoustic ballad about taking a break from reality and longing to be with someone who has died.[16][52] Pink revealed that the song was written "through a lot of tears" and was inspired by a close friend whose child had died.[9] The tenth track, "Walk of Shame", is an anthemic new wave song about the embarrassment and regret on the morning after a one-night stand.[36] Described as an "alternative club banger", the dance-inflected "Here Comes the Weekend" features guest vocals by Eminem. The song revolves around letting loose at a party, as she sings on the chorus, "Here comes/ Comes the weekend hear it calling like a siren/ We don't look for trouble/ Just enough to seeing double".[54][55] It is followed by "Where Did the Beat Go?", a midtempo R&B song with military drums and multi-layered vocals.[16][36] Its lyrics display a vulnerable Pink questioning a relationship falling apart and no longer feeling desired.[16][36] The album's final song of the standard edition, "The Great Escape", is a piano ballad. Its somber lyrics explore themes of medication, going through difficult times, and contemplating suicide.[16][56]

The deluxe version of The Truth About Love continues with the track "My Signature Move", an anthemic pop-rock song produced by Walker,[10][57] while "Is This Thing On?" contains influences of four-on-the-floor.[16] The next song is "Run", an emotional power ballad dedicated to Pink's daughter, with lyrics such as the opening lines, "Remember make believe in you/ All the things I said I'd do/ I wouldn't hurt you, like the world did me/ Keep you safe, I'd keep you sweet".[16][20] The final track of the deluxe edition, "Good Old Days", is characterized by "a refreshing, live-in-the-moment" message and melancholic lyrics.[16][57]

Release and artwork[edit]

In 2011, RCA Music Group announced that it would be disbanding Jive Records, Arista, and J Records. With the shutdown, all artists previously signed to those labels, including Pink, would release their future material through RCA Records.[58] Pink announced the album title during an interview on Australia's Today on July 4, 2012.[38] The following day, she confirmed the album's release date as September 17, 2012 in the United Kingdom, and a day later in the United States.[59] The album's artwork was unveiled through Pink's official website on July 16, 2012.[60] Photographed by Andrew Macpherson,[10] it depicts the singer with her "signature" pink hair crouching down and donning a short black top, short black shorts, garters, and red heels.[60][61][62]

On September 4, 2012, Pink announced that she partnered with the American retail company Target for a promotional campaign.[63] The partnership included the release of an exclusive, deluxe edition of The Truth About Love album, featuring four extra tracks, and Pink appearing in television commercials for Target to promote the album.[63][64] A special Fan Edition of the album was released in November 2012.[10] In addition to the standard version of the album, the Fan Edition contains six additional songs, as well as a DVD containing the music videos of "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" and "Try", four live performances from a special The Truth About Love concert held in Los Angeles, and exclusive scenes from the album photoshoot.[10]

The Truth About Love was met with generally positive reviews. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 77, based on 16 reviews.[127] Aggregator AnyDecentMusic? gave the album 6.3 out of 10, based on their assessment of the critical consensus.[126]

Kyle Anderson of Entertainment Weekly commended the songs' confessional nature, describing the record as "honesty you can dance to".[34] In a positive review for MSN Music, Robert Christgau viewed that, apart from its last two songs, the album "hit[s] every time" and summarized it as "a recorded image of [Pink's] feisty, heartfelt, all-over-the-place love/sex life".[130] Stephen Thomas Erlewine from AllMusic applauded the album for "expanding and deepening [Pink's] music without succumbing to stuffy pretension", calling it "weird and willfully, proudly human".[29] Robert Copsey of Digital Spy deemed The Truth About Love as a "fierce and thoroughly entertaining record".[43] Billboard's Andrew Hampp rated the record 4.5 out of 5 stars and hailed it as being a "peerlessly witty, endlessly melodic tour de force".[16]

Caryn Ganz of Spin compared the album favorably to Stronger (2011) by Kelly Clarkson, stating that both records "are stocked with confidence-jolting up-tempo jams, broken-hearted weepers, and candid explorations of their own flaws". Ganz also remarked that both singers "have dug in their heels even harder for guitar pop", as opposed to following current musical trends.[45] The Boston Globe's writer Sarah Rodman praised the album for juxtaposing "rock muscle, pop froth, and expressions both heartfelt and petulant".[30] Jon Pareles of The New York Times found the recording to be "[recognizing] some nonstorybook sides of romance".[36] Writing for The Guardian, Caroline Sullivan noted that the singer "funnels her thoughts into some of the most pungent songs in pop" and commended her for having "the nous to convert raw emotion into pop-punk earworms". However, she criticized the ballads which "detract from an otherwise fierce record".[129]

Hermoine Hoby of The Observer favored its "workmanlike ballads delivered with beyond-workmanlike shading" over its "chunky guitar pop stuffed with shouty, bad-girl choruses", which she considered dominant on the album.[131] Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune perceived "formula production and hack songwriting", but complimented Pink's personality showcased in its "handful" of worthy tracks.[44] Jody Rosen, writing for Rolling Stone, viewed The Truth About Love as "supercatchy", although he opined that the album "devolves into self parody" as "Pink strains to shock, peppering songs with gratuitous curse words".[31] Sal Cinquemani from Slant Magazine gave the album a mixed review, rating it three out of five stars. He felt that the record was formulaic and denounced it as "competently, often frustratingly more of the same from an artist who still seems capable of much more".[53]

Accolades[edit]

Spin listed the album at number 11 on their list of best pop albums released in 2012, with editor Ganz noting that Pink "got over her pop-star identity crisis" and presented her "genuine" side.[132] In his list for The Barnes & Noble Review, Christgau named The Truth About Love the fourth best album of 2012.[133] Billboard ranked it as one of the best albums of the 2010s decade, with reviewer Sarah Grant affirming that Pink "created a ramshackle masterpiece that reminds us of what it's really like to be human" by "figuring out how the foreign experiences of a family-woman fit into [her] repertoire".[134] The album was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards,[135] while "Just Give Me a Reason" received nominations for Song of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, respectively, at the 56th ceremony.[136] In Canada, the album was nominated for International Album of the Year at the Juno Awards of 2014.[137]
